and you are right. we are going to do everything we can to -- i do want to make one point. president obama's policies have reduced the carbon in the air and whoa over the next many years. the amazing work that he did without all of us on fuel economy standards and enforcing the clean air act which i want to say to my colleagues who are here and those who are not, if they were here i would address some on this, the colleagues here and others in the senate chamber stopped many who tried to rollback the clean air act and as it pertained to emissions that were coming from utilities and other polluters. that was critical because he will you wanted to be much more direct, on how we approach it. people have to understand that the progress that we made and we have initial studies that show the progress we have made only because we fought so hard against rolling back what my colleagues tried to do on the senate floor, environmental writer and environmental writer and if they don't see from hurricane sandy the future, if we blithely go a long and i am very disturbed for our children and grandchildre
